Bach’s setting of the canticle of Mary, Magnificat, and his Overture from Orchestral Suite in D Major; Monteverdi’s Beatus vir and Langrime d’amante al sepolcro dell’amata; selections from Telemann cantatas; and choral works by the modern composers Arvo Pärt, Einojuhani Rautavaara, and Rudolf Mauersberger.
